Me thinks if you helm one of these ol classics, you should wear an Old Greek Captains hat and have a couple of woman onboard.
Every advertising brochure of the era for boats 21ft and under built from the Mason st Newport factory had such in the photos.

Whilst I had the 18ft Commander, The hardtop Bluefin was my absolute favourite for it's time.
Just looking at the 14' 3" Envoy Fisherman original brochure which I have as well. No woman on board ?, but the two blokes in the boat are drinking a can of beer each.

Ah the days when you had an elected Barman on board and his job was to ensure ample cold supplies for the whole trip. If someone has an empty can in hand, barman would be replaced or sacked.
Then at the end of the day you went back to the ramp and drove the rigg home.
Usually the cans on board were Carlton Draught Tubes too. happy-fish.gif happy-fish.gif

Good topic and great info - but the news is that I'm working on Cruisecraft history at the moment! Any Cruisecraft Classics out there?

I'll start another thread.

Incidentally, I always loved the Savage Marlin but the good old Escort was a wonderful runabout as was the Ensign. I must have sold a bloody thousand old Tasman's in my day, and sold my own brother an Atlantic with a 105 Chrysler that went forever!
- Yes - I do like my brother! wink-fish.gif laughing-fish.gif laughing-fish.gif

One brochure image I have.

The Ensign and that Greek Captains Hat surfaces again with the woman onboard. Heaps of fishing room for lovelys onboard.
